I can't stand it when I see this kind of thing. It could be a £2000 Fiesta or this blokes 911. Makes no difference when it's their pride and joy.

I have just foughr my way thru those prats to get hime fron southern france. They are a bunch of anarchist troublemakers. Many are the usual dreadlocked unemployables. ***** the lot of them. Anyone should have the right to demonstrate but not to eff about with other peoples property or lives. I am fed up with the french and think that perhaps with hindsight we should have left france with the germans!!

You are quite right Alex. And as the old joke goes, one of my best and dearest friends is French! She would not want to read my last post. But if they are not blockading calais, or setting fire to truck loads of Welsy lamb, they seem determined to eff about with other peoples lives and livlihoods! Well cheesed off with them!

The problem is that they know that they will get away with it. The French government will huff and puff and then it will all be sorted by Xmas.

I'm not sure how French insurance works but if it were here the poor owner of the car would have to pay the excess and then limped with carrying around the extra cost of insurance for 3 years because they made a no fault claim.

The point I suppose is that the planned fuel tax increase would affect the owner of the 991 less than the yellow-vests.

To a revolutionary, the government are in the control of, and run for the advantage of, the elite. And what better symbol of the elite than a 991 Cabriolet!

It's always the Army of the Great Unwashed that seem to stir the pot. What they're doing is illegal and should be dealt with in the appropriate manner. If I were to to walk outside and do what they did to my neighbours car, I hazard a guess that I'll be wearing a lovely pair of bracelets thanks to Cheshire's finest.
It did make me laugh to watch them try and stand in front of a water cannon. First shower they've probably had since April. I bet they were nice and ripe too. Grin

I thought at 1st because you meant the Porsche isn't a diesel (which is the tax issue).

I wouldn't class a 991 as a symbol of the elite. My local barber has a turbo s from doing short back n sides.
